Sportsbooks Like Stafford To Join Exclusive Club
Online sportsbookslike Matthew Stafford to join a slightly more exclusive four-person contingent: 33-year-old starting quarterbacks to win Super Bowl MVP. His odds to win the award are +125.
With the Rams as nearly 2:1 favorites, there may be value in betting on Matthew Stafford for Super Bowl MVP based on the history of the award.
Quarterbacks have won Super Bowl MVP in 31 of 55 Super Bowls. 33-year-old Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks have won MVP in four of those five games. Sportsbooks have shortened odds for some other key contributors on the Rams but given their status as significant favorites and Stafford's status as starting quarterback, Matthew Stafford should have shorter odds to win Super Bowl MVP.
Second Year Quarterback Trend May Give Edge To Burrow
Six second-year quarterbacks have made the Super Bowl, with four of them winning. The elite group is comprised of Kurt Warner, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Russell Wilson.
NFL betting odds for Warner and Roethlisberger do not make help Burrow's case to win the game as they were both favored by at least four points, but Russell's and especially Brady's status as Super Bowl underdogs should provide a glimmer of hope for Burrow.
Underdog Second Year Quarterbacks Who Won Super Bowl
Russell Wilson in 2013 helped lead the Seattle Seahawks over the 2.5 point favorite Denver Broncos (Final Score: Seattle: 43 Denver: 8)
Tom Brady led the New England Patriots into Super Bowl XXXVI as 14 point underdogs against the St. Louis Rams. Brady won Super Bowl MVP. (Final Score: New England: 20 St. Louis Rams: 17)
Joe Burrow will be looking to join an exclusive club with Tom Brady as the second-ever second-year quarterback to win the Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP.
